Kevin Davis is excited about adding an excavator like this Komatsu PC300LC to his fleet at Davis Excavating in Starbuck, Minn., where business is picking up. Another North Dakotan making the trip all the way from Warsaw, N.D., is KB Excavating Owner Kevin Bolek, who is considering this Hitachi EX300LC excavator. Mark Boesl, owner of Mark Boesl Excavating, only had to travel across town to take a long look at this Mack RS600L truck. Ryan Fernholz of Alexandria, Minn., knows exactly what he’s looking for as he checks out the numerous skid steers up for grabs during the sale. Hank Vannett (L) of Bismarck, N.D., and Don Schmidt, a long-time employee at Lee Construction of Alexandria, watch the sale unfold from the comfort of a John Deere Gator 4 x 2. The Steffes Auction rolling registration and auction semi was on hand to make everything run smoothly.
